I am not sure if that is the actual sewing term, but it is what I am calling it. I have also heard it called chain piecing.
The point is simple!
To save thread and to save time!
You do this by simply sew your seam then when you get to the end sew a little then start your next sewed project.
Like I did making those bowl cozies.
Just cut the thread between the two!
It saves thread as you don’t need to keep pulling the thread tail out over and over.
For example I did this with 3 designs of bowl cozies, 6 squares that used the same blue thread.
I call it a chain stitch as it seems they are linked together by stitches. You might call it a link stitch. (If you know the real name, feel free to share).
But wait, there’s more!
Chain stitching is a sewing technique used to create a series of interlocking loops that resemble a chain. The stitches are created by pulling the thread through the fabric and then looping it back through the previous stitch, forming a chain-like pattern.
Chain stitching can be done by hand or by machine, and is commonly used in a variety of applications such as embroidery, hemming, and finishing seams. It is particularly useful for creating strong, flexible seams that can withstand stretching and movement, and is often used in the construction of denim jeans, where it is used to create the iconic “roping” effect at the hem.
In addition to its functional benefits, chain stitching can also be used decoratively, particularly in embroidery and other embellishment techniques. It can be done using a wide range of threads, from fine silk to heavy-duty cotton, and can be used to create a variety of patterns and designs.
